The center bore on the wheel is something that was a problem when going to aftermarket brakes. Depending on the wheel brand, either the wheel had to be machined to accept the hub, or you had to run a spacer under the rotor hat. Even though the wheel would appear to sit flush on the hub, it would be off and start to bend the stud if you forced it to tighten up. This was something more specific to the 4 lug wheels compared to any of the 5 lug. So then even at a torque spec of 50lbs, it wouldnt torque correctly but it would tighten up. Would cause a pretty good vibration in the front end rolling along that you could chase for a bit.

Proper torque is affected strongly by cleanliness of threads, coating on the threads, type of lube,
